Seems like most are very rap/pop centered.  

Wasn’t the strongest decade for rock, jazz, classical

I guess we could do both - but I was taking about individual playlists which I think would be interesting (and probably flow better as well).

Individual playlists makes sense imo 

Desert islands only have physical media players.

1.01 -  Metamodern Sounds in Country Music - Sturgill Simpson  2014

Living the Dream

The title of this album is a play off of Ray Charles' The Modern Sounds of Country and Western Music. When I first heard this album it was like a breath of fresh air for the country music genre. I grew up hearing country music of the 60s, 70s, and early 80s, because my parents played it a lot. I didn't buy any country music back then, because it wasn't my thing, but I couldn't get away from it since it was played in our house. I never hated it, and I grew to like and appreciate it. That country music isn't played anymore on regular country radio. I hear country radio sometimes if I'm riding in my mom's car with her, and it all sounds like pop twang. When I heard this album it was like hearing country of the past with some rocking psychedelia infused in it. The guitar playing is great on this album, as is Sturgill's writing, and he has a strong voice that could mistake him as an offspring of Waylon Jennings.  This album was a nice surprise of the past decade. He is also great live.

Didn't have time to get in on this one, but this would've been my 1.01.  Nice, simey. :thumbup:

Sturgill Simpson was my 5th most listened to artists in 2019 per Spotify, despite only having 3 total albums - so obviously this one was on my radar.

I’ll post my pick in a couple or hours.

It's good. It is not country at all. It is rock, and his voice sounds good in that genre too. It has heavy/fuzzy guitars (which he plays lead) and synths.

1.02

A "country" run...

Album: Southeastern

Artist: Jason Isbell

Release Year: 2013 

Cover Me Up

Elephant

Traveling Alone

For me, Isbell is the best songwriter of the decade. His lyrics paint a story that actually draws you into the narrator's life. They're incredibly descriptive yet maintain an air of ambiguity. This record is my favorite of the decade and I could listen to it everyday without getting board while on my desert island (luckily I have unlimited music in real life). The songs are mostly somber, and a bit depressing from a storytelling perspective yet they do not bring me down in fact they affect me quite oppositely - I feel inspired to face whatever obstacles are out there.

I've found myself listening to a lot of "country" recently but like Simey said not the radio-friendly country twangy pop stuff. I guess its more along the lines of "Americana" or even "Alt-Country" that I'm drawn to. When I listen to Isbell I don't think of spurs, boots and cowboy hats, although he certainly has his roots in the genre.

Yeah I really like Isbell and he puts on a great show. Its just a bit surprising given how the albums that I usually see hit the top spots on our yearly countdowns rarely ever into this lane.

I think it was also a confluence of who had the top two slots in this draft to some extent as well.

Well, you don't have to because the #1 headliners are unopposed but if forced, I'd be 100% at Miley...

So.... just how "country" are the first two picks?

Sturgill is traditional country, most often compared to Waylon Jennings but obviously with a modern twist and modern drugs. 

Jason Isbell was briefly in Drive-By Truckers, if that helps at all.

And dammit... Simey hopefully knows it's a joke and knows why it's a joke. It's a joke.
